Top Five Mobile App Development Trends For 2020

For businesses who are still debating whether or not to invest in mobile application development services, 2020 is the year to embrace software and applications.

Mobile applications help businesses to communicate internally and externally, generate millions in revenue every day, curate and store data efficiently, conduct market research, and automate business processes.By the end of this year, we can expect to see $581.9billion in revenue generated from mobile applications.

With recent advances in blockchain technology, 5-G offerings, decentralization, tokenization, AR, and VR, the mobile application industry is evolving.

Below are our top five mobile application development trends for 2020:




Artificial intelligence is predicted to have a market value of $191 Billion by 2024. For this reason, many industries are benefiting from combining human and machine intelligence.

Here at Cenango, we’ve noticed specific advances in telemedical technology and innovation from our clients in the real estate industry.

The integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning is vital in the mobile development industry. When we develop an Android or IOS application, AI can help to identify issues and troubleshoot in real-time. This helps with the agile development process that we implement as standard for all of our mobile application development projects.

Additionally, AI and machine learning algorithms help our applications to get smarter as our client’s customers use them. This means that the apps can ‘think for themselves’ and apply actions without human guidelines and oversight.

When AI and IoT combine, you know longer have to tap your screen to complete a task. Users can relax as AI controls their devices, cars, houses, and more.



5G wireless services are one of the leading tech trends in android and iOS software development for 2020.

The 5G network will allow speeds of over 100 times faster than its 4G predecessor. For this reason, many mobile app development professionals anticipate an evolution from 4G to 5G by the end of the year.

5G will help app developers further incorporate 3D gaming, augmented reality, and data security into their applications.

Also, as 5G services offer new and faster opportunities to businesses, app developers will need to carefully design their products appropriately to make use of this new level of functionality that will be on offer. All in all,5G will offer our clients improved performance and faster network speeds, which will combine to make our apps more functional and beautiful than ever before.


Beacon technology-enabled applications utilize geographic data and marketing to offer uses unique products and services based on their location.

Beacons use BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) signals. Once a mobile device enters a beacon perimeter, an application will pick up the signal emitted by the beacon and send appropriate instructions and notifications to the users.

Beacon technology is already very popular in the museum, hotel, and healthcare industries. As marketers approach the new decade with innovative strategies, mobile app developers must be savvy about how to build apps that utilize this technology for excellent results.


Year-on-year, the popularity of wearable devices is increasing amongst the global population. Advances in technology have brought down prices and made these technologies more accessible to more people.

From Apple smart-watches to FitBits, applications have to be built to function and integrate with smart devices to complement the products and offer valuable service.

A Business Insider study revealed a 35% increase across the wearable market in 2019. Additionally, a Statista report stated that wearable device revenue capped $33 billion last year.

Due to this massive spike in demand across the wearable market, mobile apps must be built to support this technology fully. Developers need to be ready for an enormous increase in demand across the telemedicine and healthcare industry for wearable integrated applications.

This year we predict there will be less reliance on smartphones and increased use of health-monitoring applications and trackers.



In the mobile app development world, chatbots help with essential aspects of communication. They offer real-time, non-human interactions to provide information and communications between applications and users.

These services are precious for service providers as they help to save money and time while enhancing levels of customer service.

According to industry experts, nearly 85% of interactions with businesses will be processed through chatbots by the end of 2020. This innovation helps to reduce the human weakness of getting tired after offering 24×7 services.

The use of chatbots is already increasing in the first quarter of 2020. The stats show that bots are becoming better at matching human behavior and providing relative levels of service. Global Market Insights predicts that the global market size for chatbots will over 1.34 billion USD by 2024.
